#muslimrage in twitter takes a turn for the funny

Postby nakatago » Tue, 18 Sep 2012 9:28 am

So, Newsweek had an inflammatory cover about the protests over that POS "Innocence of Muslims" film. It invited people to discuss #muslimrage and this is what Muslims came up with:

Lost nephew at the airport but cant yell for him because his name is Jihad.

I'm having such a good hair day. No one even knows.

Being born in the Chinese year of the pig.

Waiter didn't tell me my dish had pork and just found out. Dropped my glass of wine.

Ramadan in Iceland when days are 23 hours long.

The shawarma guys wraps my sandwich too tightly, so I have to rip off little pieces of paper bit by bit.

There's no prayer room in this nightclub!


Hilarity ensues.

That's pretty funny stuff. Here I was all puffed up and ready to attack you as a blasphemer! :)

most amusing!

In regards to the video, sure it's defamatory and totally unacceptable, but, it's always only a few people that get angry and start smashing things up, I have a number of Muslim friends and they seem unphased byt he ordeal, they think it's disgusting, but, they understand that this world has a load of idiots.

A silly video can trigger an outrage around the world. Yet, one image (from theonion dot com, VERY NSFW) which mocks other religions, without Islamic attributes, does not cause similar "war".

Haha yes. That image was hilarious lol (even though I am a Hindu and Ganesha is doing the bulk of "work" in that picture) and thankfully nothing major happened in response to that. Of course, worse things would happen if the image portrayed something offensive pertaining to the other religion (ala the "Draw Mohammed"/SouthPark hate campaign).

People need to stop being so sensitive religion and stuff.

I think The Onion is wonderful. It's the example I would always use in a discussion on comedy when someone (usually a Brit) says something to the effect that Americans don't do subtle, 'clever' humour (or humor) of the Pythonesque variety.
Be careful what you wish for
